The Amazing Race - 10/12 Show

jackie's tv blog, the amazing race

I apologize for my absence as of late. I haven't been well. But the show has started here on the East Coast (on time even!). I won't be live-blogging it, but I will update this post with important events. As always, everyone's welcome to hang out in the comments rooting for your team or mocking teams!

Argh. The clue says "make your way on foot." Mark and Bill, wake up!

Uh-oh ... will Starr convince Nick to U-Turn Kelly and Christy (who have crashed anyway)? U-Turn wasn't used. The Roadblock is a hoot with them donning spandex and fighting women!

Pit Stop Order

1. Ken and Tina -- also won trip to Mexico
2. Toni and Dallas
3. Terence and Sarah
4. Marisa and Brooke
5. Aja and Ty
6. Nick and Starr
7. Andrew and Dan
8. Mark and Bill -- Sit out 30 minute penalty due to taking cab
9. Kelly and Christy

Alas, Kelly and Christy arrived before the 30 minutes was up. They're still in while Mark and Bill were Philiminated.

Hope you feel better, Jackie. I am ready to rumble. GO GEEKS!

Petals said...

I like my team (Toni & Dallas), but I REALLY like the best friends, the geeks? They are awesome!

RBennie said...

Oh no its my teams turn to not follow instructions! At least they figured it out. Hopefully it won't set them too far back.

RBennie said...

Hi Petals, Becky and RJM!

Anonymous said...

Uh, oh! Frat boys may be in trouble. Why aren't these teams READING the clues?



joyn

RBennie said...

The geeks are gonna be in trouble for that cab.

TerryinCA said...

prayers for your health Jackie....

Petals said...

Hey Rbennie!

Clementine said...

Jackie, sorry you are not feeling well. This has been a long road for you. Stay strong and hang in there!

Well, at least the Belles are enjoying themselves. Good choice, not to U-turn anybody.

Petals said...

okay, I'm a dummy. What does it mean if they "u turn" someone?

RBennie said...

Hi Terri & Joyn

Petals said...

and why NOT choose to use it? Karma?

Petals said...

Will the divorcees blame their ex husbands for not letting them learn to ride bikes?

RBennie said...

LOL Petals. There is no reason for Nick & Starr to use that U turn. I feel kind of bad for Kelly & Christy

Jackie said...

U-Turned people have to go back and do the other task on the detour.

Mark and Bill are the ones who didn't follow the clue. They're geeks. The frats are Andrew and Dan -- they did the band detour.

Anonymous said...

Aja and Ty seem fairly calm.

I meant geeks, not frat boys back there.

Hi, rbennie and all.

Terry, hope our pool couple make it tonight.


joyn

OkieGal said...

Petals, U turn means they have to go back & do the OTHER task they didnot choose....
you can use it only once during the entire race...don't use it until it might be more to your advantage

Sydney said...

woo hoo!

I have to be on a onference call one sunday night a month and tonight is it... my hubby is watching and recording it for me. :-(

Will have to catch up on what all of you say and comment later.

Hope terrance and Sarah stay in this week.

Petals said...

((Jackie)) This is my first full season, start to finish, of AR. Thanks for helping me with the rules.
I love the geeks.

Petals said...

This is FUNNY!!

monty924 said...

Mark and Bill, what have you done?

Jackie, I hope you feel better soon. You've had a rough road this summer. Take care!

Petals said...

SYD! Your team is doing well so far... I don't know how well Terrence will fair against his Cholita, tho...haha

Clementine said...

Petals, you are too funny!

I want to see Terrance get his butt kicked by a fighting Cholita.

RBennie said...

Wow the blondes are in 2nd place. What a difference a day makes.

monty924 said...

Ooooooooo, "May be eliminated"! Please oh please or Mark and Bill are doomed.

RBennie said...

Should have known Sarah would do it.

Petals said...

smart, Sarah. They'd make mincemeat of Terrence.

DKNYNC said...

Feel better Jackie, nothing else reaaly matters. You will be in our prayers.

Petals said...

Frats will LOVE this...

Petals said...

GO DALLAS!

Petals said...

they won't eliminate tonight, right? The past 2 wks have been eliminations.

Petals said...

GO MARK!!

Nana in the NW said...

sorry to interject--off topic--I have put a comment up on the prev. post regarding my mom's passing away. When TAR is over and those who have asked please go back and read it.

RBennie said...

OMG poor (is that Mark or Bill?) and where is my Sarah?

monty924 said...

Oh my God Nana... I'm so sorry. I'll include you and your entire family in my prayers tonight.

RBennie said...

Oh Nana, I'm so sorry for your loss. My condolences to you and your family.

RBennie said...

I really hate Ken & Tina, LOL

joy n said...

I left a message for you on the last post, Nana.

Petals said...

If there is any justice, Nick & Starr will get get lost.

Petals said...

Good job Terrence & Sarah!

RBennie said...

Yes, team #3

Petals said...

uhoh

Petals said...

Starr seems like the kind of chick that has had alot of obscenities screamed at her already.

Petals said...

NO!!!!! Oh man. I hate that, they were cool.

RBennie said...

Oh too bad. I liked those guys. Laurie's gonna be upset.

joy n said...

Aw, man, I liked Mark and Bill. Wish this could have been a non-elim.

Anonymous said...

I DON'T BELIEVE IT! They did not read the clue correctly and because of a penalty were eliminated.

RBennie said...

I'm glad Kelly & Christy didn't get philiminated just so we can see the confrontation with Star.

monty924 said...

Becky and Dla, we've been philiminated. I'm going to miss Mark & Bill on the race. :(

Nana,
I am so very sorry for your lose. May all your happy memories of your mom help you through this difficult time.

meb said...

While Nick and Starr talk about doing things to the others, I haven't really seen anything so bad, so why tattle on them and/or why not like them, especialy since Nick tried to make friends with the divorcees??? Oh well, they're still in the race, and that's what's important, right Sue!

I hate it when they don't read the clues with a magnifying glass. Come on people, this is a race.

joy n said...

Terry, looks like a little marital strife brewing for our Aja and Ty next week.

delee said...

Petals WOWSERS our team came in
2nd. Did not look good for awhile there for us.

meb said...

Oh Nana in the nw... I didn't read the posts before I commented. I am so sorry. May your friends bring you comfort and may God bring you peace. So, so sorry!

lynn1 said...

Jackie,
Sorry to hear you have been ill. Please take it easy so you will feel better soon.

Meb and I will see our team (Nick & Starr)race again next week but I was sad to see the geeks go.

Nick & Starr are agressive players and are not above dirty tricks,but I do have wonder if Starr was guilty of tossing the sports bra as charged by the divorcees.
It is possible that the bra tossing happened when cameras weren't rolling but that is the kind of trick that TAR usually documents on tape.

I am not fans of the divorcees and I am on Nick & Stars team so at this point I will give Starr the benefit of the doubt.

Sydney said...

arrrrgh, my fave guys got Philliminated!!!!!!!!! I am bummed, even though my/Rbennie's pool team was 3rd or 4th -- Terrance and Sarah. I wasn't sure when they realized they had to go back and walk their whole challenge that that was correct, and clearly it was... T/S are in the race and the other boys were DUN done!

Didn't they remind you of the two Myth Buster guys?

I was also glad the 2 pink gals caught up so well from being in last place.

Sydney said...

MS. Petals -- Can you let me know who this pic is of in your first two posts?

And Jackie, I am hoping you sleep well and feel beter RIGHT AWAY!!!!!!!

Laurie said...

rbennie said: Oh too bad. I liked those guys. Laurie's gonna be upset.

How the heck did they lose??? Dang, I really wanted them to go all the way. They were smart... or so I thought! Dang ...

meb said...

I'm getting my teams mixed up... Sue is my partner in Survivor... Lynn1 is my partner in TAR. We're doing pretty good Lynn1.

Jackie hope you're bouncing back. We need you in good health! Is it the flu or you're just not feeling well?

Anonymous said...

Woo hoo! Karen - we're in first place again! I think Ken & Tina may be around for awhile.

Jackie, hope your feeling better soon.

Jackie,
Hope you start feeling better.

Personal note to Nana -
Just now catching up on today's posts. My heart sank when I read yours. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Spend a lot of time with each other now, especially with your dad. Remember all the good times and all the love. Right before I read the post, I had received the following in an email. Worth remembering.
"IF GOD BRINGS YOU TO IT, HE WILL BRING YOU THROUGH IT."

Petals said...

Syd - that is ME! (haha) No, it's Brian Urlacher (sp?). I saw it in ESPN, and it cracked me up so I downloaded it for fun.

You didn't know I was such a looker, huh? hehe

Speaking of which, maybe we need a lil page that has "real" pics of the real "we"? So we can all put faces to names, since we've done so much personal exchanging lately.

Jackie - sorry you are not feeling well - hope you will feel better soon - recovery is hard.

Jennasmom - Yeah! Our team is in first! AGAIN! I really was hoping the divorcees would have been gone, but looking forward to seeing if they "confront" Nick and Starr. Have a great day everyone!

TerryinCA said...

Oh Nana, so sorry to hear about your Mom. I didnt read the first post, just seeing it here now, please know you are in my prayers.

Joy N, am I in the pool with you and jackie on TAR? I didnt know! I thought it was you and me with Dan on Survivor only....coooool

Margo said...

Man - My divorcees just squeaked by. Sorry to see the "Geeks" go, I was hoping for a non elimation since Phil said "May". Oh well - I hope my team goes from last to first next week.

Nana-

I am so sorry for your loss. I'm glad your family could all be there when the time came.

Margo

joy n said...

Sorry, Terry, like Meb, I'm getting my teams from Survivor and TAR mixed up.

Survivor - Terry

TAR - Jackie

Survivor - Terry

TAR - Jackie

Sheesh, I've gotta get with it.

Caroline said...

Woo! Mine & Clementine's S. Belles did great this week! They made a nice move up to 4th place and didn't stray from their smiling, fun ways.

I'm not sure if I buy the whole sports bra fiasco either. Like Nick/Starr said, it would give them no advantage. Assuming it's false, than Karma certainly got even with the divorcees and I laughed my butt off each and every time they crashed their bikes. They certainly weren't as gifted in the brains department as most.

I hope Aja/Ty don't melt down too bad next week. I really like them so far and wouldn't want bickering to distract them enough to get philiminated.
